Product Improvement Through Co-Granulation
If you are developing a multi-component dry granulated formulation you should consider how co-granulation can benefit your product. Many products have their component materials granulated individually and blended together afterwards. However, Co-granulation is the process of blending multiple materials in process or in line with granulation and this can provide a variety of performance benefits.
For example, co-granulation can be used to improve the overall uniformity of your product. Since each granule is homogeneous you don’t have to worry about components settling or shifting during transportation or storage. Co-granulated material also doesn’t experience the same flowability challenges found in multicomponent mixtures where one component may flow at a different rate than another. Co-granulation is also a great tool for formulators. Specialty components and fillers can be added to improve performance or add new product features.
